I play a variety of games and do a bit of modding on Crysis. The thing is I'm in college and my spare time for modding is somewhat unpredictable. Recently wrapped up the Tactical Expansion mod for Crysis, and working on a ongoing singleplayer map.

I'm new to the whole modding thing, so any help would be great. I installed the mod with the dropbox and now what? How does the Mod work? I did a little looking and I found that there is a Mods folder in the Crysis folder. But other than that I don't know what I'm doing. I read on here that there is something about a shortcut..... But how do you create it? What do you name it? I tried starting a new game on Delta, but I don't see a difference. Do you start with anything new to know the difference? Thanks.

Hey, looks like kilroy has been gone for quite a while, as a fellow modder and biochemist I'll try and help out.

The mod basically works by adding a bunch of models, animations, and system parameters which replace the base to make the game work differently than stock. All of these files are in the Mods folder you already discovered, the map/world changes are in files in the Crysis\Games\Levels.

Anyway, it sounds like the files you acquired did not come with an executable to perform the full installation for you. Please reply and let me know what files you have and what you have done so far so I can try and get you what you need, for instance the mod-shortcut instructions are in the readme file.

Also the difficulties have parameters set in .cfg files outside the mod in Crysis\Game\Config named diff_xxxx.cfg. These parameters include suit energy discharge times, consumption rates for suit modes, health amounts, whether the enemy speaks English, driver controlled turrets in vehicles/boats, however the best is you can do minor tweaks in the AI. You can set how long it takes from when the enemy notices you to when they fire at you and how accurate they are. But there is no difference in starting equipment, you are merely slower and under-powered with less health combined with faster, more accurate AI.

Hope this helps.

Could you give more info as to how you installed the mod and which mod version you are running. I personally use IZArc similar to winrar etc, which allows really easily to merge the extras and their parameters directly into the primary .pak to avoid any of those issues.
